ECD, CertainTeed Partnership Focuses On Roofing-Integrated Solar PV

Energy Conversion Devices Inc. (ECD), a manufacturer of thin-film flexible solar laminates, and building products manufacturer CertainTeed Corp. have formed a joint agreement to develop roofing-integrated photovoltaic products for the residential market, combining ECD's UNI-SOLAR cells with CertainTeed roofing products. The companies expect these new products to be commercially available beginning in 2010.

‘This agreement is a significant expansion into a new market for ECD,’ says Mark Morelli, the company's president and CEO. ‘CertainTeed is clearly an industry leader in building materials and has a broad product offering that can take advantage of the unique characteristics of our flexible, lightweight and reliable UNI-SOLAR cells.’
